Lego Masters is full of brand new themes in every show, but some are way more challenging to Amy Corbett than others. Even though the contestants do the building, the judges also feel the joys, pain, and distress. So, when it came to the Smash Challenge, Corbett found it to be a bit on the distressing side. As a creative builder, it’s only natural for her to empathize with those who had to smash their creations and watch them spill onto the floor.

10. What do Legos Mean to Amy Corbett?

During an interview with The Decider, Corbett discussed what Legos meant to her as a product designer for the company. She emphasized the infinite creative choices that people, both adults, and children, have with Legos. The possibilities to create and solve design problems are only limited by the number of bricks in one’s collection. If one doesn’t have the piece they require for their project, they can solve the problem by finding an alternate way to complete the build. This is what Lego lovers always do during their play – they might buy a Star Wars Lego set one moment, then turn around and construct a gas station from it. And as far as Lego creativity goes, Amy Corbett is all up for it!
